    Hey guys,

    I need some help.I'm creating a 100 blog network.I have bought 100 c-class ip hosting package.

    Now, I got an email for the login detail of whm and cpanel.

    I'm now confuse what to do.I have got 100 domains, I want each domain to be on seperate nameserver, and seperate ip address.But I'm confuse what I need to do.And, do I need to create 100 cpanel accounts ? Or do I need to create only 1 cpanel account ?

    Can anyone please help me, would be better if you can help me through IM.

    Thanks

    Log into whm as root

    Then on left menu find show all IP

    Take 2 IPs and save the IP#'s

    Goto your domain control panel and goto register nameserver

    Add one IP as NS1 and other IP as NS2 then save

    Then change the domain DNS to NS1.YOURDOMAIN.TLD/NS2.YOURDOMAIN.TLD
    Then save

    Go back to WHM and create new account

    Select option to manually create options and it should show how much bandwidth etc.

    Scroll down to dedicated IP and check box, once checked select the IP of your NS1.

    Then near bottom check box where it says something like USE NAMESERVERS AT REGISTER or similar, by check box it will then show up your custom NS1/NS2.

    Then create account!

    Now you have custom NS and domain is on the ip of NS1

    That is how it is done the easy way.

    I'm assuming that you want each domain to have private nameservers like this:

    domain1.com : ns1.domain1.com, ns2.domain1.com
    domain2.com : ns1.domain2.com, ns2.domain2.com

    If that's the case, then you need to "register" each nameserver at your registrar. Your registrar should have a tutorial on how to do that.

    Once you've done that, you can transfer the DNS for each domain using the nameservers that you just registered.

    The next step is to add the nameservers in WHM:

    1) Click "Basic cPanel/WHM Setup" in WHM.

    2) Under "Primary Nameserver" put the value for your first nameserver (ie: ns1.domain1.com).

    3) Under "Secondary Nameserver" put the value for your second nameserver (ie: ns2.domain1.com).

    4) Under "Primary Nameserver" click "Assign an IP address." Assign it the IP address that you chose for this nameserver earlier.

    5) Repeat for "Secondary Nameserver."

    6) Under "Primary Nameserver" click "Add an 'A' Entry for this Nameserver."

    7) Repeat for "Secondary Nameserver."

    Note: Don't put anything in the value for "Master Nameserver."

    8) Click Save.

    9) Click "Manage Nameserver IPs" on the left menu to verify the existence of your nameservers within WHM, and also if they are pointing to the proper IPs according to WHM.

    Next, add a "DNS Zone" for each domain:

    1) In WHM, go to DNS Functions --> Add a DNS Zone

    2) Enter the IP address and the domain name. You have to include the "www."

    3) If the DNS has propagated, you should now see the cPanel "Default Web Page" when you go to your site. If you see that, then everything is set up correctly.

    After you've registered your nameservers and added the DNS Zones, you can begin creating hosting packages in WHM and setting up hosting accounts. Each domain will get its own cPanel account, but you can access ALL of your cPanel accounts through WHM by viewing the "List Accounts" page. If you can't find that, just go to the search box in WHM and type "list" and you should see an entry for "List Accounts." For security reasons, every account should have a unique username and password.

    I do tend to make things more complicated than they are sometimes, although I wasn't aware of a simpler way to do what the OP was asking, so thanks for that.

    I don't hold your post count against you. Don't jump into the fire. :)

    I usually create a new acc for every domain:
    on whm: account functions => create account
    there will be a separated cpanel for each domain:
    mydomain.com/cpanel

    but with 100 domains....

    seems nettlestein's method is much easier

    Why not just use your registrar name servers ?

    I always thought that from SEO point of view it's best to have name servers on a different IP class with as many records as possible (especially if you're doing BH)

    When thinking about it now I can't remember from where that assumption came.. but that's what I'm doing for more than a year..
    can anyone share pros & cons of using your registrar name servers and straighten this up for me?

    I never use private nameservers. Always use the registars as like to minimise footprint as much as possible
